REV. SAMUEL Aduama, Head Pastor at the Apenkwa branch of Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC) has admonished drivers especially commercial vehicle drivers not to engage in over-speeding and other unhealthy practices on the road.
He noted that many people would be travelling to celebrate the upcoming Easter in their home towns and big cities across the country.
This, he said, presents the temptation to drivers who would want to hurry up and drop off passengers so they can come for others who may be in queue to undertake similar journeys.
Speaking to the media ahead of the church’s upcoming medical screening exercise on Saturday and an Easter Convention slated for the 3rd of April to the 7th, Pastor Aduama said it was important that drivers keep to responsible driving so that they could preserve their own lives and that of passengers they convey across.
‘’I want to take this opportunity to admonish drivers, especially commercial vehicle users, to drive responsibly as Easter approaches so that both their lives and that of passengers who patronize their services are preserved’’, the Minister of the Gospel appealed.
The CCC Preacher said the church has decided to conduct a free medical screening for members as well as persons living within Accra especially those in the Apenkwa community.
He noted that it was necessary for people to test to know their status medically, adding that the church was committed to the wholesome wellness of its congregation and others.
Pastor Aduama revealed that medical doctors and nurses would screen for almost all the medical conditions at Saturday’s screening exercise including blood sugar, blood pressure, hepatitis, HIV, dental and body mass index.
‘’As part of our commitment to the people of Apenkwa we will give space to the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) to register people on their scheme. We also urge church members and interested persons who would be coming for the screening to come with a prepared mind to donate blood to the blood bank to help save lives’’, Pastor Aduama revealed.
Touching on the church’s Easter convention, Pastor Sammy as the preacher is affectionately called said the General Overseer of CCC, Reverend Ransford Obeng would be ministering at the program which comes off from Monday to Friday.
Other speakers, he noted would be the resident Pastor for CCC main, Pastor Joshua Obeng as well as himself and Bishop Raymond Acquah also ministering.
The conference which is christened the Jesus Convention, according to Pastor Sammy promises to be a kind where God would grant impactful grace to all patrons.
‘’I see GOD planning to show and overwhelm us with his grace and favor for us to function and do exploits in our individual lives and collectively as our church and it is with this belief that I urge all in Accra to come and join us at this Jesus Conference to experience the visitation of the Lord Almighty’’, the Apenkwa CCC leader stated.
